Tsunami Inundation Maps Released

For those who like to dwell on future calamity, the California Geologic Survey released a set of Tsunami Inundation maps yesterday covering major sections of the California Coast. The nice thing about a steep coastline is that most of us don’t have much to worry about – although parts of downtown Monterey and Santa Cruz may be in for a rough time when the Big One hits.

The maps should also serve as a reminder that the beach is not necessarily the best place to locate major projects. Projects like the Monterey Bay Shores “Eco-Resort” that the Coastal Commission turned down again this week – and that other beach hotel Sand City wants to build – come to mind.
